Oh, I'm just a blogging FREAK today!
First, Congratulations to Vanilla! He finished his first marathon today!!! I think he ran up and down a dumpster. First Nic the Chiropractor runs around an ice rink 95.4 times, now we have vanilla marathoning dumpsters. Both of these guys deserve a big congrats!!!!! Awesome guys!!!
I'd give Jim's race report on his half marathon today, but I haven't heard from him yet.
EDIT: Jim ran a 1:43 half marathon!!! Way to go coach!! NEXT: BQ.....
After I saw that vanilla finished his marathon and was still alive, I set out the door for my own little jaunt. It took me a while to feel warmed up.
Run time: 42:34
Distance: 4.01 miles
Average: 10:37 pace
Best pace: 6:51 pace
The first 2 miles I felt like I was dragging, and I was. I think I was at an 11 min pace. The last mile felt the best. I almost went an extra mile, but if I want to do the half Feb 15th, I'd better ease into it.
